We present in this study a method for comparing the relative effectiveness of different non-profit institutions with similar objectives. In addition, we show how this measure of relative effectiveness is related theoretically to their relative efficiency. Finally, drawing on developments in data envelopment analysis, we illustrate the new methodology using data from 107 institutions of higher education.
